Vacation Time a Human Right

FOXNews.com - Brussels Declares Vacation Time a Human Right

Brussels Declares Vacation Time a Human Right

Sunday Times

Brussels has declared that tourism is a human right and pensioners, youths and those too poor to afford it should have their travel subsidized by the taxpayer.

An overseas holiday used to be thought of as a reward for a year's hard work. Now Brussels has declared that tourism is a human right and pensioners, youths and those too poor to afford it should have their travel subsidized by the taxpayer.

Under the scheme, British pensioners could be given cut-price trips to Spain, while Greek teenagers could be taken around disused mills in Manchester to experience the cultural diversity of Europe.

The idea for the subsidized tours is the brainchild of Antonio Tajani, the European Union commissioner for enterprise and industry, who was appointed by Silvio Berlusconi, the Italian prime minister.

Coming soon the USA next? :cuckoo:

As they say, the more they lose their discernment between rights and privileges...

Umm, that sounds pretty dumb. THere are things people can do for vacation without traveling far and wide, and spending a lot of money.

And thats not happening here as much as the right will make dumb slippery slope arguments and make shit up

The 'dumb slippery slope' arguments don't sound so dumb to me.

Cause you are dumb:razz:Considering the bailouts were solely to stimulate the economy in a bad time, not some stepping stone to turn the entire country socialistic, its just paranoia. ANd the HC reform because the system was broken

I foresee mandatory paid vacation time coming down the pike in the US.

Those socialists really are insane.
